Nothing fancy, that's for sure. In fact, it's kind of dark and off-putting at first glance, not unlike an old college haunt. But the beer is cold and the pizza and pasta are delicious. We even ordered an extra meal off-menu to take to an...More

We were pleasantly surprised with this lovely local pizzeria. Best pizza I’ve had in San Miguel, crispy crust, good selection of toppings. Definitely a place to return to.

If you go to this restaurant be sure to sit upstairs - very cosy and romantic. The downstairs area is blah. This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in San Miguel.

what really makes this pizza special is the ginger sauce that you're given to add on to it. the prices are reasonable, the service decent. the atmosphere can be a little claustrophic, what with the cramped space and low ceilings, but it's a nice place...More

1st Italian Restaurant in San Miguel de Allende. We have been serving locals and tourists from around the globe for almost 30 years. Many people love our thin crust pizzas with homemade tomato sauce and the combination of ingredients of each clients choice. Everyday we prepare hand made pasta: fettucine, spaghetti, raviolis and lasagna as well. Please come by and experience our very cozy and unique historic architecture, in a place that feels as if you were in a grotto anywhere in Italy!
